Former #UVAMLax All-American and current Atlanta Blaze goalie Adam Ghitelman traveled to Nicaragua with the Lacrosse the Nations organization, putting on clinics at two different schools in Managua. he Blaze players taught the children basic lacrosse skills, but had a greater goal aimed at teaching beyond the sport as well.
